Hell Over Hollywood: The Truth About the Movies!

Author: Jitterbug-hating revival preacher Dan Gilbert
Date: 1945
Publisher: Zondervan Publishing, Grand Rapids, Michigan

Representative Quotes:

  • “Hollywood is the nearest thing to ‘hell on earth’ which Satan has been thus far to establish in this world. And the influence of Hollywood is undermining the Christian culture and civilization which our fathers built in this land. The Hollywood influence is making America over — according to the pattern of alien Communism and of hell itself.” (page 14)
  • “One actress had diamonds set in her teeth. Another provided a private carriage and personal valet for her pet monkey.” (page 16)
